Just starting out cutting opal or maybe you like to have a better idea of what you are buying? Opal rubs might be the product for you. Rubbed opal is opal that has been roughly faced and cut – not into nice opal shapes but essentially into something that shows the color and the outline of the finished stone. You can get a much better idea of what you are buying – as well as having the joy in completing the process by polishing the stones into the shapes you desire.
Opal Rubs from Lighting Ridge Australia
All our rubs are from the opal fields and Lightning Ridge and are 100% natural and not treated. We stand by our 30 day 100% money-back guarantee that as long as you haven’t altered the parcel in any way – you can send it straight back to us for a refund. For lapidary enthusiasts buying rubbed opal is a sure way to add value and generate a profit without the risk you have when buying completely rough opal. Because the stone is faced, you can see what you are buying and only have to imagine the shape and the final polish. Unlike some other sellers, we sell rubs that we would be happy to cut – we just don’t get the time to do it so you can be sure in the knowledge that the opal we sell is quality that we would be happy to cut and sell ourselves. Because of limited supplies, we advise that when you see a parcel you like – buy it immediately to avoid missing out.
